Idyllically situated in a well-established Modderfontein estate, this inspiring home embraces its natural surrounds. The architectural style stands out with its clean-cut lines that have resulted in big, airy open-plan spaces. It is further enhanced by the inclusion of natural materials like cladding, stone paving and wooden beams which emit a warm ambience throughout the exterior spaces.
The owner loves all things Balinese. Subtle Balinese touches add to the aesthetics of the home. Dark furniture complemented by rich and opulent soft furnishing adds a timeless appeal and enhances the natural look that the owners required.
One of the most striking features of this home is the open-air atrium that is located in the middle and connects the kitchen to the lounge. The atrium as well as the immaculate landscaping were done by Geckolicati Lawns and Landscaping. With emphasis placed on igniting all of one’s senses, the landscape and atrium allow these residents the opportunity to live in harmony with nature.
The residents of this abode love entertaining so in order to accommodate this, they furnished their home with pieces that look fashionable but above all else are extremely comfortable. The lounge and dining room flow onto the patio creating one massive integrated space.
The home is divided into two levels. The upper level is home to the main en suite bedroom and a huge nursery for the couple’s child. Situated on the lower level are the living areas including two en suite bedrooms and a self-contained cottage. Throughout the entire home the level of comfort has been maintained, making this home a haven for rest and relaxation.
It is without a doubt the perfect place for a young family, one in which they can enjoy a stylish, safe and above all convenient and comfortable lifestyle.
